Pension scheme M&A transaction advisory

Protecting stakeholders through clear advice

It isn’t always clear what will happen to a pension scheme if a company is being bought or sold. Stakeholders will be apprehensive, and regulators will be vigilant. Expert foresight can help to flag issues before they derail a merger or acquisition.

FRP’s experts will take an objective view to rigorously assess how a scheme will be affected by a change in ownership. Starting with an assessment of the transaction’s terms, we can point out if there could be any material detriment to the scheme.

Our thorough understanding of pensions and corporate finance means we can explain your options in a way that’s easy to understand. Along with UK listed transactions, we’ve helped international mergers and acquisitions, explaining the complexities to those who aren’t familiar with UK pension schemes.

Where our advisers bring the most value, though, is their practical approach. They’ll suggest straightforward solutions to potential pitfalls and take a key role in negotiations, easing the pressure of a complicated process.
